Today’s devotional thought by Jefferson Vann
Luk 12:32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, because your Father is delighted to give you the kingdom.
Luk 12:33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide yourselves wallets that do not wear out– a treasure in the sky that never decreases, where no thief attacks and no moth destroys.
Luk 12:34 Because where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
perspective on present possessions
The thing that the Lord tells his followers to pursue, just happens to be the very thing that he says God is delighted to gives us out of the riches of his grace. So, that is why we can afford to be so generous with the other things we have. We see those things (present possessions) as temporary, and we have already been promised an eternal inheritance to replace them. If our hearts were tied to this present stuff, it would indicate that we are not seeking Jesus.
LORD, give us your perspective on this present stuff, and make us generous with it.
